Our kitty Linguine went to see the veterinarians yesterday. We were following up on some strange symptoms she had been exhibiting a while back.
Our cat is yellow. Her gums are yellow. Her skin is yellow. The whites of her eyes are yellow. She is showing all the signs of acute liver disease.
Except that she isn't.
The vets are baffled. Linguine should be a very sick cat, with low energy and no interest in food. But what the vets saw was a hilariously active, affectionate cat with luxurious fur. They saw a cat who climbed all over them, and who is a bit of a chow-hound. They saw an apparently healthy cat with elevated bilirubin levels.
For the moment, Linguine is on anti-inflammatory medication, as well as (I think) medicines for her gall bladder. It's all very mysterious, and I won't pretend that I'm not worried.
